Students will have the capacity to engage in designing their life after college through early discovery and ongoing exploration. Guided by peer and professional career coaches, students will have expanded opportunities to discover their interests and build future-focused skills together with other students, alumni and industry experts through robust career communities.
Students will have increased access to top local, national and international employers through a co-working career space in Capen Hall and on South Campus, along with 24/7 career chats, artificial intelligence-powered resume reviews, virtual reality expeditions, and trending industry/company treks. By building a portfolio of out-of-classroom learning experiences, students will gain a competitive advantage in the job market.
The Career Services Fee is being charged for the first time in fall 2020. It will be charged to undergraduate, graduate and Pharmacy students with the exception of MS/MBA/PMBA/EMBA students within the School of Management, graduate level Law students, Medical, Dental, externally funded students and student in overseas major programs.
When should I come to Career Services?
We believe in engaging you in designing your life and career early in your UB experience so that your choices can be intentional, thoughtful and impactful. By starting early in the design process and then continuously accessing the resources your success is enhanced. We recommend engaging with us early and often.
What if I want to explore a major or change my major?
Most students change their major-many change several times. Exploration is a good thing. We are here to assist you as you discover options. In addition to coaches, there are a number of assessments that can inform your choices, your direction and your design.
How can I get a job after graduation?
Your prospects for getting a job after graduation are enhanced by building a strong resume of experience during your time at UB and building your network. Securing an internship or two and making connections with alumni contributes to your success.
